Biography

Peter Penson is a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology and Pharmacy Practice at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. In addition, Dr Penson is an Associate Editor of BMC Pharmacology and Toxicology and a Section Editor of Archives of Medical Science: Civilisation Diseases. A Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, he has conducted research at Cardiff University and University of Surrey, both in the UK, and at the University of Regensburg, Germany. Dr Penson’s research interests include cardiovascular pharmacology and clinical outcomes in cardiovascular disease, with a particular focus on hypertension, dyslipidaemias and ischaemia-reperfusion injury. He is primarily involved in observational studies, clinical trials and meta-analysis. He is a member of the International Lipid Expert Panel and he works with many international experts in the Lipid and Blood Pressure Meta-Analysis Collaboration Group. A pharmacist, registered with the UK General Pharmaceutical Council, Dr Penson is a member of The British Cardiovascular Society, The European Society of Cardiology, The British Pharmacological Society, The British Society for Cardiovascular Research and the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

Dr Penson teaches cardiovascular physiology, pharmacology and therapeutics on the MPharm. programme. As a pharmacist, he is also involved in teaching Pharmacy Practice elements of the course. He has responsibility for undergraduate and postgraduate masters projects in addition to supervising PhD candidates. Dr Penson leads the third-year of the M.Pharm curriculum, which is organised as a single 120-credit module called 'Complexities of Healthcare'.

He has carried out pedagogic research into the use of lectures and electronic media in teaching and learning in undergraduate pharmacy education. He led a team which conducted a funded research project to identify the learning needs of pharmacists and pharmacy staff in relation to delivery of commissioned services. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
